Donald Trump Loved Joaquin Buckley’s Insane UFC Knockout, Called Dana White!
Joaquin buckleyKO’s incredible kick back has happened at the White House – President Trump was so impressed he called Dana white to be delirious!
Buckley’s insane dismantling Impa Kasanganay at UFC Fight Night 179 exploded after being hailed by many as the biggest knockout in MMA history.
In reality, Kanye west used the knockout footage as the backdrop for his new song, “NAH NAH NAH” … which has already been seen by millions of people.
When we spoke with Buckley, he was STOKED to get love from Yeezus – suggesting that they could collaborate on a project together down the line … even if Joaquin isn’t rapping!
“Hey, I can learn how [to rap] although! I can write it very quickly. I can suggest several things !! “
As for President Trump, Joaquin says he got a call from UFC President Dana White after the knockout told him his good friend POTUS had personally called him to tell him how impressed he was with the epic finish.
And yes, Joaquin says he’s flattered by the Commander-in-Chief’s compliment.
“He’s the world leader at the end of the day. In fact, it’s good to have someone like that by your side.”
And get this, Buckley, 26, is still NOT a full-time MMA fighter – he has a job at Walgreen … although he admits he may have to cut back on his hours to focus on the fight now!
“I’m still employed by Walgreens. I need to talk to my boss right away because I was supposed to be home Monday!”
Buckley says he enjoys Walgreen’s job, but his fighting career is exploding right now and he knows he will need to commit full time to compete at the highest level.
The good news … Buckley says his boss and coworkers are 100% supportive.
“They’re just happy for me. I’ve told them where I’m from, they know my background, they know my story – and just to see where I am now, everyone’s proud of me.”
Buckley is 11-3 as a pro and is now set to face Jordan wright at UFC 255 next month!
What a month for Buckley!
